trouble moving large controversial legislation and we think back to the president's health care law, his health insurance entitlement program, they had to do that on a budget reconciliation vote, basically a procedural end around to avoid the 60 vote threshold and it's stuck in the craw of a lot of liberals. they think now though, they have enough leverage with this threat against the minority that says either give up-- either voluntarily lessen your own power, agree to lessen your own power or we'll take it away with what's called the nuclear option. >> i just, i don't understand. i mean, i see why harry reid wants that now, the democrats want that now that they're in power, but look at our history. they won't stay in power forever. they just won't. the republicans will come back at some point and regain control of that chamber, and then what? how are the liberals going to feel if we wind up with a republican president, a republican senate and a republican house and there are, you know, seriously curtailed minority voting rights in the senate and shut out. >> all that matters to the oba

. otherwise we are going to be behind the curve again. secondly i think it's important to change the laws about best value contracting versus lowest price technically qualified. by statute the state department guard contracts in dangerous places like libya and everywhere except iraq and afghanistan must be awarded using a lowest price technically acceptable selection process. we have requested a change in the legislation that would allow us to use some discretion to try to deal with the varieties of the local guard forces. we currently have it in afghanistan and pakistan, but it's going to expire. that's something else that i would ask the committee to look into. finally the point that the chairman made and you echoed, congressman, an authorization, i was on the armed serf service committee. it was a great organizing tool and made sure our defense needs were going to be met. i believe in the world in which are we are living, our diplomacy and development needs are important. we don't have the same focus and working with the senate foreign relations committee on authorization where you can

already predict some serious challenges that include spending caps signed into law in 2011 that could make the next four years extremely difficult from a governing standpoint. let's talk about it with chris wilson, a republican consultant, former executive director of the texas republican party and the president of new heights communications. kristi, to you first. candidate obama in 2008 promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. that hasn't happened. how about by the end of his second? >> well, john, i think what's important to remember is that as president obama is starting his second term, he's doing so in a remarkably strong position with high approval ratings and a great record in his first term. when he started, as we all know, the economy was in the ditch. he was able to successfully get us out of that at the point where last week the u.s. stocks closed at their highest level in five years and was able to pass historic health care legislation. by contrast, republicans have their ratings in the toilet. what that means is that there's probably -- it's going to b

the curve again. i think it is important to change the laws about the best value contacting versus lois, but a qualified. the state department contracts in dangerous places like libya except iraq and afghanistan must be awarded a using a lowest price technically acceptable selection process. we currently have at -- it's a but it is going to expire. -- it but it's going to expire. the point that the chairman made authorization. working on an authorization, i was on the armed services committee in the senate. we did an authorization every year. it was a great tool. it made sure our defense needs were going to be met. i believe our diplomacy and development needs are very important. we do not have the same focus. working with the senate foreign relations committee on an authorization where you can look everything and have subcommittees' delved into these different issues coming up with an authorization would be a great step forward. >> thank you. >> madam secretary, thank you. thank you for the cause and working relationship we have had during your tenure at the state department. why were
ahead and enforce the laws on the books, they've been pushing for that all along and they like that and plus, it was a couple of weeks ago, where wayne lapierre was excoriated on the airwaves for saying how dare him coming out and saying we should have more police officers or armed personnel in the schools. and now the president of the united states, in his initiatives have suggested that as well to put some more school resource people in the schools. so, that goes along with the nra as well. >> brian: right now we're waiting for the swearing-in ceremony nor vice-president joe biden to get underway, they're running a little late and we'll bring it to you live when it happens, even if you're in the middle of at pocket chair ad. does this look like a threat? a five-year-old suspended fr kindergarten because of this? we report you decide. >> looks like a hair dryer.

's writing new law, that cannot happen. we struck down once, the court struck clinton down for trying this, and i'm afraid that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing and we're going to make sure that it doesn't happen. >> paul didn't specify which of the executive actions he thinks ought to be enacted rather by congress, or what other king-like actions the president might be considering. the president's top lieutenant of the gun control debate will address several hundred mayors about the issues and he'll do that in washington today. vice president joe biden said to speak at the u.s. conference of mayors just about four hours from now, when that happens, cnn will bring it to you live. the president of that group, that mayor's group is philadelphia mayor michael nutter. he's a big obama supporter and during an appearance before a u.s. house committee nutter slammed the nra for this ad that criticizes the president for not wanting to put armed guards in schools while his own daughters get secret service protection. mayor nutter joins me now from washington. welcome, m
that and, you know he have vaded the law. >> will only manufacturers be banned from making them or will the distribution and ownership also be banned? then there's this. >> require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. >> it may be politically doable but problematic from a policy standpoint. right now about two dozen states don't contribute to the federal background check program on a regular basis and expanding to all private sales is a huge challenge, even if the government sets up an online application. >> to try and regulate that portion over the internet could be extremely difficult and complicated at best. >> another can of worms is preventing the mentally ill from buying guns. right now a court or a judge has to rule that a person is mentally defective before it's reported to the background check system. the question is, whether a lot of people with serious issues who shouldn't qualify are still able to get guns. >> many people do not go through the core process for any type of process for seeking mental health treatment or
is going on offense against the president's call for gun laws, while refusing to back down from a controversial web ad that focused on the obama daughters and their school. many people feel that ad crossed a line, an important line. one of those is susan eisenhower, who was protected by the secret service when her grandfather was in the white house. great to see you, susan. you and your brother, david, were in the white house as grandchildren, in fact, not very widely known fact, camp david was named after david. >> that's correct. >> by your grandfather. so, tell me about your objection to the web video and why you think that the nra went too far by suggesting that the obama daughters somehow, you know, have security and have benefits that are not available to others. >> well, andrea, let me say very quickly, i've had a 30-year career in international security and arms control and energy security, but this gun control thing is a really tough issue, and it's tough because it's emotional. what the nra has done is to make it even more emotional by bringing in ancillary arguments a

laws in this country. how much a part of the president's resolve will that be in the months coming? >> well, the thing -- the president always said that, you know, you have to do many things at once when you're president, and that's a very important thing. we can't keep replicating these tragedies and it's not just the big tragedies, but the small, smaller strategy dtragedies than the streets every day. so he's determined to move forward on this package of laws. they're not the only things we need to do. some of the things have less to do with government and more to do with what we -- what we do in our home. what our children play and in terms of video games and what they watch. but certainly we need to do something about guns. we are hopeful that we're at a moment when we can pass the impasse that we have seen in the past and really move forward on it. >> hey, david, bob schieffer here. >> hey, bob. >> in normal times, probably we wouldn't report this, but in these fractured times this just in as they say. i'm told that speaker boehner, eric cantor, the number two republican in th
concerned about this health care -- new health care law. it is already going to cost me millions in my current budget to implement it, effective 200014. >> why is it costing you millions? what's the source oaf that expense? >> the source of the expense is the current growth in the medicaid program. once it begins this 2014 they'll try to have a number of people sign up for the current medicaid program. in my state, that'll be about $72 million. >> and are your businesses going to essentially take the penalty rather than the mandate and put their workers on to the so-called exchange? >> you know, i don't think we know the answer to that question yet. there's so much uncertainty and unknown. our businesses are still trying to figure it out. but i do know this. they're very, very concerned about the cost of obama care. >> all right. we'll leave it there. governor dave heinman of nebraska. good luck and thanks for coming on. >>> now talk about a p.r. nightmare. boeing 787 dreamliners remain grounded around the world tonight. but did the stock bounce back? we have some answers ahead, i thin

, that delegate votes won in a primary wouldn't be cast as allocated by state law. >> let me stop you here. you, specifically say "primary." you believe it's different for caucus states? >> well, in a caucus situation, the people are actually elected as delegates, in some way, under state party rules. so it really wasn't an issue with respect to caucus states, because caucus and convention states, if there's no primary involved, the delegates that are elected get to vote the way they want, and candidates run people for delegates and those delegates win. the issue, however, was settled in the tampa convention, and the idea that candidates could disavow and remove dually elected delegates from the states was pulled out at the last minute, so that's not one of the points at issue, currently, in matters that relate to the republican rules. i think the real issue is, will the republican party remove the power grabs, which ben ginsburg, who you mentioned, oversaw in the convention rules committee, and i'm submitting a motion to repeal all those power grabs that can be repealed, by the republican nati
the government has come out today and said that no, we don't need to think about revising the bank of japan law. it was a threat they had out there before this statement came out. i think that independent story is something we can forget about for the time being. i think the interesting point is that monetary policy, anyone will tell you, has its limitations. especially in a country like japan. i think the onus is going to start shifting to the government itself and the government is looking ahead to an election, as we talked about many, many times. and here becomes the tricky part because they're trying to embark on structural reforms, they're talking about tax reforms, as well. this will be a multi layered process and hopefully they'll be in power long enough to deliver some of those changes. i think the market was expecting for the bank of japan to come in .deliver everything that was going to solve all of japan's problems after decades of recession, then they were probably misguided. but for the moment, the reaction we're getting from people who were watching japan is they probably took as
